What is Digital Accessibility?

It is important to understand that we all access information in different ways. This could be via a laptop, a phone, or a tablet. Equally, it could be with the support of a piece of assistive technology, for instance a screen-reader or read-aloud software. Some of us may rely on visual means to take in information, whereas others require audio. Digital accessibility ensures that we can all access the same content in a clear and consistent format that best suits our individual needs.
